1. My most memorable Christmas was when I was 12. My mother had been in hospital for a couple of weeks already, and was going to have to remain there for at least another 3. I was moping about the house, feeling very sorry for myself, when my father came through the door carrying my mother in his arms. The hospital had arranged for her to come home for a few hours so that we could spend Christmas together. One of the most emotional moments of my life.
Oh shut up people.Most Memorable Christmas: Helping a friend in need... a single father, whose son is his world. I have watched this man go hungry (literally) to ensure his boy was well fed.
It was 3 years ago, and I was in a position that paid rather well. On a whim, I spent a huge sum of money on food, gifts, toys, household supplies, and enough firewood to get them through the whole winter.
I arranged for it all to arrive at his place the morning of Christmas Day.
His boy was so happy with all his new toys, and my friend cried and hugged me... it just made me feel so good. Since that Christmas, it has been all about giving on the holidays. Doing something above and beyond for someone in need can remind them that there is still greatness in humanity, and that love can conquer any hardship.

Such nice and moving stories and being during Christmas makes them more emotional.
Thanks for sharing them!
